The Just Ask Bus Needs a Little Push. Financially.

To all who are liking the photos and video from the Houston Art Car Parade:

Please know that it wasn’t easy getting to this stage of the Just Ask World Tour. It took a lot of time, sweat and money to make this happen.

Reggie and I were happy to take care of the time and sweat and a lot of the money involved with raising awareness of neurofibromatosis.

But now, unfortunately we are falling short on the money part that will take us through the tour.

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 8.45.11 PMI am truly excited as we have proven that the Just Ask Bus will work as a great awareness vehicle, pardon the pun, through the views donations and Shares of news of our travels.

The $15,000 we have raised so far has helped to get the Just Ask bus in condition to travel the country. We have a motor we kind of trust, the exterior wrap is finished and looks great thanks to some special help from Matt Cline and Bayou Graphics, and a very functional but yet cool looking interior from the Upholstery Shop.

Now, quite honestly, we need to build up the GoFundMe account so that we can actually travel with the bus.

This upcoming trip to attend the CTF Forum in Scottsdale, Arizona has more than tapped us out on our expense account. Fo us to continue and post a schedule, we will need to raise some money, not a lot, but enough to get us to a few more locations.

We really want to be able to make it to Canada and see all of our friends in Vancouver, Calgary, Manitoba and, yes, Red Deer.

Any help you can provide, no matter how small will go a long way for Just Ask to fulfill it’s mission — to make life easier to all with neurofibromatosis by raising awareness, understanding and compassion for those challenged by it.

I can’t think of a better ambassador for NF patients than Reggie Bibbs.

He is doing extraordinary things way beyond even his comfort level to make it easier for the next NF patient to live life a little easier.

If you are unable to donate, and we totally understand, at least share this page with your friends in the event they would like to help.

I think we owe Reggie our unending love and affection but also the funds to help him do what he was born to do.

Joanie King – Hero to Reggie Bibbs, Just Ask and all people with neurofibromatosis!

ALL HAIL JOANIE KING!!!

If it wan’t for Joanie King, the Just Ask Foundation would not have had the strength, stamina, know how or ambition to turn a run down, 1991 GMC school bus into a cool, smooth running, good looking, art car that has been seen by over 300,000 people on a Saturday afternoon in Houston.

If it wasn’t for Joanie’s enthusiasm, kindness, generosity and can-do spirit, I’m afraid of where we would be with the Just Ask Tour. She gave us strength and hope when we had none and her contagious enthusiasm kept us going when we were ready to give up.

It seemed only fitting then on Saturday that Joanie King was leading the way as the Just Ask World Tour Bus made its inaugural voyage in the year’s Houston Art Car Parade.

I just want to say this about Joanie…when other people just promise, Joanie is the person that does. I would rather have one Joanie than a thousand of the others!

She will always have our back and we will always have hers.

We love you Joanie King.

Just Ask Bus Gets a Face Lift. Finally!!!

IMG_9621Man, you have no idea how long Reggie and I have waited for this moment where we can finally say, “The Just Ask Bus is ready to roll!”

Thanks to the kindness and generosity of John Coleman, at Auto Upholstery by Coleman in Houston, we have a totally new interior with seats, cabinets and everything! I can’t tell you how proud I am to have our new bus represent the Just Ask Foundation as we raise awareness of neurofibromatosis throughout the United States and Canada!

We are so grateful to all of our friends who donated their time and money to make this bus a reality! Of course, we’re broke now but very happy! Thank you all for your nonstop support!!! Onward and upward!
